THE STORY:

**SEPT. 8, 2013 UPDATE TO THE POST BELOW**

The bad news: I was told two weeks ago that I had an inflamed sciatic nerve, which runs from the lower back to the tip of the toe. The doctor's order not to run seemed unnecessary in light of the fact that I had limped to her office.

The good news: (I think) I'm all better now. Some muscle relaxants, a lot of ibuprofen, and two medicinal butt patches later to heal the inflammation, I think I'm ready to go again. So I'm late, not cancelled, and after a few test runs to confirm my wellness this week, I'll hopefully be able to run the Lausanne Marathon in Lausanne, Switzerland on October 27.

(Original post below this.)

Friends, family, and occasional stranger:

On September 14, 2013, I'm running the grizzly, gruesome, ghastly, parental-advisory-sticker Jungfrau Marathon (http://www.jungfrau-marathon.ch/en/) in Interlaken, Switzerland. Why? A year ago, I spent six weeks working for one of the most inspiring and impactful organizations I've ever come to know: the Swami Vivekananda Youth Movement (www.svym.org), which builds and operates schools and hospitals in rural southern India. Since 1984, the organization's work has provided otherwise unattainable medical and educational services to tens of thousands of Indian families, and I want my run to help this cause.

So here we are: you, me, the run, and the cause. I'm doing the heavy lifting here, but can you sponsor me by the mile? The kilometer? The dollar? The euro? Maybe hedge that I'll throw up in the bushes and get dragged off the course? Every little bit helps, and the target goal of $1650 pays for 100 square feet of classroom space in the Viveka School of Excellence in Saragur, India.

This race isn't about me. Let's do it together, as we should do anything.

Danny
